Stand For The National Anthem? No, I Refuse!

Aug 29, 2016 | | 4 comments

Let’s be clear about what this song, this document, this poem, really is, … shall we? Third stanza of the Star Spangled Banner: “… Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave: And the star-spangled […more]

Have We Discovered An Intelligent Signal From Space?

Aug 29, 2016 | | 1 comment

Interesting. While outside with my dog this morning, I was looking up at the stars and thinking of just this: For all of us who are more interested in objective reality, than in our imagined realities, wouldn’t it be nice if we picked up a signal from space. It would change our perceptions as a […more]

I sure did not expect this to be the work of a research department in a university. But, it is. As to their research, there is another explanation for this other than reincarnation of individual consciousness.   Technically, all is energy. What we think is physical matter is perception, not reality itself. We each have […more]

The Dirty Lie That All Lives Matter In America

“When you counter with “All Lives Matter,” you discount the entire history of our nation and the current realities of its institutional racism.

Texas does not really care about the due civil rights of its minority citizens. Texans keep talking about seceding from the United States. Texans keep talking about how the Big Brother, the federal government, is […more]
